Pingree works as a part-time consultant for Safer Chemicals, Safer Families, a national coalition advocating for the better regulation of chemicals. On July 24, 2012, she testified before the United States Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and its Superfund, Toxics and Environmental Health Subcommittee about the regulations of chemicals, particularly flame retardants.
She also manages her family's Nebo Inn with her husband and raises her two children. She serves on the North Haven Community School Board and on the board of trustees of the Island Institute, a community development organization focusing on the Gulf of Maine and its island communities.
After U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) announced that she would not seek re-election in 2012, Congresswoman Chellie Pingree, Hannah's mother, explored running for the open U.S. Senate seat. Hannah Pingree confirmed on March 4, 2012, that she was collecting signatures to contest for the 1st District congressional seat held by her mother if the latter chose to run for Senate. On March 7, Congresswoman Pingree announced that she would not run for the Senate seat and would instead seek re-election to her congressional seat.
Hannah Pingree contributed $3,800 to political candidates in the 2012 election cycle.
Prior to leaving the senate, she served on the following committees:
40 under 40
In 2010, Pingree was highlighted by Time Magazine as one of the 40 leaders under 40 who are "rising stars of American politics."
Pingree was ineligible to run under Maine's term limits.

Maine Arts Commission
Pingree's sister Cecily was awarded a 2012 fellowship from the Maine Arts Commission worth $13,000. The Maine Heritage Policy Center suggested Cecily's relationship to Hannah and to their mother, Congresswoman Chellie Pingree, may have influenced Cecily's selection for the merit-based award.
Pingree's mother is Congresswoman Chellie Pingree, and her sister Cecily is an artist and Maine Arts Commission Fellow.
